Here’;s a note from Denise Jones, Operations Manager for Bernina Sewing Centers located in Hancock Fabrics locations:

I?have always loved making soft toyspersonalized gifts for him, and when we got our new grandson I had a chance to make some more. Not being a fan of hand sewing and loving brightly colored socks I decided to give the Minkee Pal 2 Collection #12061 from OESD a try with some socks. I used one pair of footies per toy. I cut them open and used fusible woven interfacing (OESD Gentle Touch) on the back to keep them from stretching. I then followed the same instructions as if I were using Minkee.

I opened each design in my BERNINA Embroidery Software in order to edit out some of the stitches as I thought some of the details might be too busy with the striped socks. My grandson loves them and when they need to be cleaned my daughter-in-law just throws them in the washer.

Designs are available from your local BERNINA/OESD dealer, and from www.embroideryonline.com.
